4.0 out of 5 stars awesome :-), 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a pokemon card collector folder and it holds pokemon cards, what's not to love? The only flaw is that you can't add any additional plastic wallets once you have filled the ones included, this is the only reason I have given it a 4 star rating. Perhaps a little over priced when you can by a standard binder for less then half the price and buy plastic wallets to go inside as and when you need them... but it probably won't have pokemon on it, so it's not quite the same if you are an avid pokemon fan :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars human interaction and/or catnip spray may be needed :), 26 Jan. 2015

This review is from: CatIt Senses Play Circuit (Misc.)
The design of this is awesome. The ball doesn't get lost under a cupboard and there are plenty of slots for the cats to access the ball in the circuit. You can arrange the circuit into three or four different patterns. Also it easy to take apart to clean. Getting some cats to play with this may be a little tricky. Initially my partner and I had to play with it ourselves while the cats watched. Eventually the cats got the idea and began to play with it themselves. Most cats are like children and can get bored with a toy very quickly. We have noticed that of out 9 cats only the youngest one (18 months) will play with it by herself, the other cats will only engage with it if the youngest cat starts a game first or if my partner and I get involved in a game with it. Catnip spray can help encourage some cats to play with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Potentially good, but definitely needs some design improvement, 26 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Catit Senses Food Maze (Misc.)
There is no denying it, our cats love this and the fact that it is easy to take apart for cleaning purposes make it a really attractive purchase. The biggest flaw with this toy (from a human perspective) is the hole in the top, yes it is plenty big enough to pour the treats in, but its also big enough for our youngest cat (18 months) to put her head in so this toy is nothing more than a glorified bowl to her. Two of our older cats use the hole in the top as a handle to pull the entire toy over tipping all the treats on the floor within seconds of them being poured in which kind of defeats the object of the toy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having 9 cats it's easy to get an overview of how awesome a toy is. The favourite feature of this toy amongst all 9 cats is most certainly the scratch pad in the centre. All but one of our cats have been seen using it. The ball feature is popular with our youngest cat (who is 18 months) but the others aren't all that interested. From a human perspected the toy has its pro's and con's- The con's are few but there are a couple- the fluffy thing on a stick (which is actually a spring) just slots into the centre of the pad, my cats like to pluck it out and dump it in the middle of the kitchen floor or drag it into the nearest litter tray so the play aspect of this part of the toy isn't really appreciated here. The scratch pad in the middle is made of cardboard so when the cats scratch it you get tiny bits of cardboard all over the toy and floor. That is all I have as far as cons go. The Pro's- The scratch pad aspect is great for claw maintainence, also the pads are surprisingly hard wearing despite being made out of cardboard. We've had this a month and 8 cats are using it on a daily basis and there is still plenty of life left in it. I have seen that you can buy replacement scratch pads for it on amazon, so when this scratch pad has eventually worn out I can just buy another. The toy is easy to take apart to clean, simply unpluck the fluffy thing on a stick, lift out scratch pad, unclip ball and wash the plastic base in warm soapy water, dry thoroughly before replacing scratch pad.

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, simple, but cardboard, 14 April 2012
This is a simple but brilliant idea, a cat scratching surface made completely of cardboard and embedded with catnip. My cats love it, they scratch it, lick it and sleep on it. The facts that my cats love it would ordinarily give it a 5 star rating, however I feel obligated to ask is it worth the price? A cardboard box cut into neat strips and stuck together is pretty much how this board is made, surely a cardboard box doesn't cost as much as this board? The idea is genious, the price, for what it is, seems a bit over the top. There is one small flaw with this board, being made of cardboard means it shreds easily which can make a bit of a mess. For the maticulous, cleaning up bits of shredded cardboard is likely to become annoying. I have 4 cats and they have had theirs for 2 months, it has been used daily and it shows, however there is still plenty of life left in it. Overall a great cat accessory, but whether or not it is worth the price is something I still can't decide.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful fabric, 5 Jan. 2012
I purchased this for my daughter out of a catalogue, and as other reviewers have already stated, your duvet slides around inside leaving it clumped somewhere in the corner of the duvet cover. The fabric is made of 100% polyester and it feels awful. My daughter loves it because it is Doctor Who, but I absoloutely hate it. Several times a night I am having to shake the duvet back into place which is a ridiculous chore especially as I cannot stand the feel of the fabric in my hands

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, 5 Jan. 2012
I bought 2 of these for my kids for christmas. They are great fun and good value for money. The car has 2 settings- just lights, or lights & music. These vehicles are great for playing with in the dark as the wheels flash different colours giving a fun disco affect and it doesn't take much talent with the transmitter to get these vehicles to break dance- my kids really love these cars. There is only a couple of gripes with this vehicle. 1. there isn't an option to turn the lights off without turning the vehicle off which means you can't play with the vehicle around people who suffer from migraines which is triggered by flashing lights.
2. The transmitter has a telescopic aerial- these are not recommended for heavy handed kids/adults, if they swing around with the aerial extended and it hits something/someone it is likely to bend or snap (if it bends, don't try to straighten it because it WILL snap!). If the user pushes the aerial in too hard it is likely to bend or snap. If you have two transmitters and use telescopic aerials for sword fighting they are likely to bend or snap... so word of warning, telescopic aerials are delicate and are prone to bending and/or snapping. I am currently struggling to find 2 replacement telescopic aerials for these vehicle. Apart from the aerials, these cars are brilliant fun and good value for money

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be a lot better, 5 Dec. 2011
My mum bought me this for christmas 2009. Being a 29 year old Dukes of Hazzard fan I was really happy with the choice of gift. At £15 this RC vehicle is cheap, and you really do get what you pay for. I let my 11 year old son play with it for 10 minutes and in that time he managed to snap of the flimsy plastic windscreen wipers and both side mirrors just by crashing the General into walls. This car can be fairly fast especially when it is being powered by a fresh set of batteries. The speed of the vehicle can make it hard to control and its the bouncing off furniture that causes bits of the car to break off (namely windscreen wipers and side mirrors), something you probably don't want to happen to your brand new toy. Any fan of Dukes of Hazzard will be familiar with seeing the General Lee flying through the air. If you fanatasize about watching this RC car flying through the air in typical General Lee style, you are going to be very disappointed. This vehicle struggles to get over uneven flagstones in the garden let alone drive up a home made ramp to fly off the other side. You could maybe achieve flight by driving it off the end of a table or off the top of the stairs, but you'll only be able to do it once- make sure you have a dust pan and brush handy to sweep up the bits should you wish to experiment. To get the best out of this vehicle you would need a flat open space. If you painted this car blue or red or green it would be no different to any other RC car in this price range, except for the special effects button... YEEEEHAAAA! I have to say, that bit definately is cool.

So overall- durabilty is naff. Speed is good. Handling... okay if you already have some experience with RC vehicles. I think probably the novelty of this vehicle will quickly wear off with many Dukes of Hazzard fans simply because this vehicle isn't capable of achieving anything like the stunts achieved by the General Lee seen on TV (at least not without trashing it). As a collectable, its worth having, just don't let the kids play with it!

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm not paying for advertisements!, 26 Sept. 2011
I nearly purchased this from Sainsbury's... I was able to read it from cover to cover in under a minute. It saved me from wasting my money purchasing a hard back advertisement feature on amazon.

Do your kids a favour, let them sign up to lego club, it's free to subscribe and they will recieve a free magazine 4 or 5 times a year. This annual is nothing more than a hardback version of one of those free magazines. It is only slightly thicker than than the magazine, but that is probably because it contains more full page images of latest lego models that seems to me to be nothing more than an advertisement feature aimed to incourage kids to nag their parents to buy more lego products. Personally, I am not prepared to spend 4.99 to be nagged at, when I can sign my kids up for regular free magazines and be nagged at without paying that extra cost!

2.0 out of 5 stars google it instead!, 28 Aug. 2011
This book covers general care of frogs and toads, but it's not particularly helpful when it comes to care of a specific species. It has information on some specific species, but only of an real use to a complete beginner who has no access to the internet or any other book. I suppose if you have absolutely no idea what species of frogs and toads are available in the pet trade, this book could be a bit useful as an introduction. I was particularly disappointed that it contained absolutely no information on any of the Bombina species which I found strange as this is one species considered ideal for beginners. On the whole I would avoid this book, and simply google the information you need.
